Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Workshop: Cyanotype Printing and Pinhole Photography / 28-29 October

Join visual artist Almudena Romero for an introduction to the historical processes of cyanotype printing and pinhole photography. Gather inspiration in the Gallery and learn the basics of analogue photography and these early printing processes so that you will be able to practice independently after the course. Suitable for all abilities.

On day one, beginning with a Gallery visit during which you will see different examples of early techniques, you will learn the process of cyanotype printing and create unique images on a variety of papers. On day two, you will construct your own pinhole camera, learn how to load it with photographic paper, create an image on a paper negative and make a paper positive out of the same negative.

Born in Spain in 1986, Almudena Romero is a visual artist working with early photographic processes such as cyanotypes, salt printing or wet plate collodion, along with new technologies including 3D printing. In 2015-2016, Almudena was commissioned by the Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum (Tokyo), the Fundación Mapfre (Madrid) and the Victoria & Albert Museum (London) to deliver different educational projects to promote knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of the wet collodion process alongside the Julia Margaret Cameron exhibition at these museums.  Her practice has been exhibited throughout the UK and internationally in galleries and festivals including the Brighton Photo Biennial and PhotoIreland, and has been featured in TimeOut, DUST magazine, Uncertain States and Photomonitor.
